The Punk Rock Museum is opening its doors in March this year in Las Vegas, Nevada. We got in touch with some of the founding members and curators of the museum, collectively known as, well, the ‘Collective’.

Canada’s Locket are back in a beautiful way. The alt rock band has shared its first new single in three years in the form of “Sonic Bloom.”
1969 to 1989. Twenty years. Two generations. Thousands of artists, dozens of subcultures, countless pictures and articles. A beer…
‘The Chisels Are Calling’ (Street Singer Productions) offers an adoring portrayal of John Monteleone’s life’s work and process, to the point that a single viewing is a treat in and of itself.
A welcome gift to fans and a captivating window into the band’s history and performance alike, check out Clara Griot’s Cave In mini-documentary ‘Days of Nothing’ (Relapse Records).
Supernatural horror movie Smile debuted just in time for Halloween, and now director Parker Finn’s debut feature is available for slumber parties and Netflix n’ chills the world over!
With ‘The Jangling Man: The Martin Newell Story,’ the biopic on Martin Newell (Cleaners from Venus frontman) by filmmaker James Sharp, entire veins of brilliance are uncovered.
Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s ‘Trouble Is…25’ documentary (Provogue Records/Mascot Label Group ) does a fine job of playing well to its niche.
Jay Malinowski dives into Bedouin Soundclash’s attitude toward defying genres, eschewing social media, and his method behind painting their latest album’s artwork.
The Damned’s ‘A Night of a Thousand Vampires’ is the perfect dose of the macabre and theatre for Halloween and for those with their musical tastes firmly embedded in the era of goth rock.
‘325’ (Cursed Blessings Records) is the third EP from St. Catharine’s, Ontario outfit The Holdouts. It’s punk, it’s hair metal, it’s rock n’ roll, whatever: it’s good.
Overall, ‘Dio: Dreamers Never Die’ isn’t just a great metal documentary or biopic or historical narrative – it’s a great movie. It’s just what Dio deserves, but perhaps more importantly, it’s just what Dio fans deserve.
To put it as plainly as possible, L.Teez’ debut, ‘Studio Blue’ (Hydrophonik Records), is a great jazz record for hip-hop heads and a great hip-hop record for jazz enthusiasts.
